    It would serve you well to do a search on the TB-O. It should yield more than you'd get in one thread.

    If you've tried it out well, and are happy with the tone and feel, make sure you try it while standing and strapped on. Many prefer the wenge neck (most pre-'98) over the ovangkol.

    Just as any other bass, judge it individually.

    Good luck.
  3. The neck tends to dive and it took quite long time to get used to it.
    Otherwise it is a good bass with good "growl" and lots o mid's.
    Listen to LD50 with Mudvayne to get a hint of how it can sound.
